Holiness Among the Brethren

“But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.”

1 Peter 1:15-16

     In secondary chapel this morning, our high school students were reminded that our God is a God of holiness.  As Christians, we are called to live a set-apart life, different on purpose from the lives of many around us simply because God Himself is holy.

Living a holy life certainly means avoiding sins such as cheating, lying, gossiping, and sexual immorality, but it also means putting the needs of others above our own.

The Bible teaches us that, “When ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ,” and that we should “consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works” (1 Cor 8:12; Heb. 10:25).  As Christians, we have a high responsibility to others to uphold those around us and make it as easy as possible for them to do what is right and holy.

Our students at LCA are taught that, “Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Cor 10:31).  Every part of our lives must bring glory to this holy God.  We do that by living this set-apart life focused on the needs of others rather than our own.

Each staff member here at LCA is privileged to be able to show off a great and holy God to our students.  We value the opportunity to teach our students that they are called to be holy and to help others in every action they take.  Please pray that this meek, Christ-like attitude will be developed in the lives of each of our students.

Winter Break

Please note on our school calendar that LCA will be closed for our annual winter break this coming week, February 19-23.  School will resume on Monday, February 26.  Our school office will also be closed during winter break.

Re-Enrollment

We sent home a packet of information on re-enrolling for the 2018-19 school year with your children today.  All families wishing to send their children back to LCA in Fall 2018 must complete the re-enrollment process.

We hope you have found the program of LCA to be an encouragement as we partner with our parents to see God’s best in the lives of each student here.  It is our prayer that God will lead you to return this fall and continue to be a part of the ministry here.  Our curriculum is designed with a scope and sequence in which each year builds on the one before it, and we are confident your child will continue to grow through each passing school year.

If you have any questions about the re-enrollment process, please contact Mrs. Kettlewood in our school office.

Open House

Each year, we look forward to our open house activities.  This year, we have set Adventures in Reading as our theme for the open house scheduled for Thursday, March 8, at 7:00 PM.

In conjunction with the open house, we will be presenting a Science Fair with the work from students in Grades 1 through 12.

Please invite any friends you have who may be interested in the ministry of Latham Christian Academy for their own children.  All families are welcome to drop in between 7:00 and 8:30 that evening.  We hope to have a full house with current students and prospective families!

Possible Blood Drive

Our American Christian Honor Society sponsor and members are considering hosting a community blood drive later this year.  We need to be sure at least 30 individuals are willing to donate blood for us to be able to set this up.

We are considering a late afternoon and early evening blood drive on a Friday later in the school year.  Please let us know if you could tentatively commit to donating blood if the opportunity were available here.

We hope to sell surpass that minimum number and provide this life-saving event at our church and school.

Busing Requests

If your family is planning to use public school busing services to LCA in the coming school year for children entering kindergarten (K5) through 12th grades, you must notify your district’s transportation office no later than April 1.  This is a hard deadline and requests made after this date will likely not be honored by your district.

We have some districts’ request forms available in our school office.  Please see Mrs. Kettlewood with any questions.
